Novelist, screenwriter and PJ Media co-founder Roger L. Simon doubts that co-workers of Charlie Rose were unaware of his alleged sexual misconduct, charging they "knew and went along."
In an interview Tuesday on "Newsmax Now" on Newsmax TV, Simon decried the silence of those who worked with Rose at PBS and CBS as he faces accusations of alleged lewd and inappropriate sexual harassment of eight women.

"These people knew and they went along," he charged. "I mean that's the reality. … The ones who speak out, good for them. But these other ones who are suddenly saying, 'oh I didn't realize this.' I mean I had heard rumors about Charlie Rose and I'm sitting in [Los Angeles].
"All these people better hope there's no God."
The scandal is one story that will never make it into a Hollywood film, he asserted.
"The left controls Hollywood," he said. "They won't touch it."
But there are echoes of the scandal in classical theatre, he added — and Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, the French playwright and author known as Moliere, would immediately recognize the controversy surrounding Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore.
"The more pompous someone is about everybody else, the more likely he's doing something in the back room," Simon said. "Unfortunately for the Republican side, which I vote with now mostly, is that I think Judge Roy Moore is a Moliere character.
"The minute somebody starts to say 'I'm the most moral guy in town and all the rest of you are creeps,' it's a giveaway unfortunately."
